Call for artists!

Art at the Market 8x5The Southeast Area Farmers’ Market hosts “Art at the Market” during market hours, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 16 at Martin Luther King Jr. Park, 900 Fuller Ave. SE 49506.  The market invites local fine artists and crafters to stop by and vend at the market with no vendor fee.

Our neighborhoods have many accomplished artists in its midst. Art at The Market will provide them an opportunity to showcase their talents, inspire their neighbors and share any messages that their art expresses. The date was chosen to coincide with Artprize as this event is not always accessible to artists from the Market’s neighborhoods or neighbors living nearby.

The market is open 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Artists will need to provide their own tables, tents and chairs.

Several artists exhibited and sold their work during last year’s Art at the Market event, including Kent County commissioner Candace Chivis and successful fine artist, Derrick Hollowell. “The market is a real way for an artist to connect with the Community,” he says. “The casual atmosphere leads to personal conversations about an artist’s methods and motivation. It is a great way to find new collectors for your work, great vibe.”

The Southeast Area Farmers’ Market is open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays at Gerald R Ford Academic Center. The market warmly welcomes SNAP/EBT, Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) and WIC & Sr. ProjectFresh as well as cash and debit cards.
